Bypassing the Blues

Bypassing the blues

Whoever has not  suffered blues
Sometime or the other in life
When you are left without a clue
As to how to escape its knife

Here is my advice, please don’t laugh,
And it’s a sure-fire method to try
To make  blues take a downward graph
When, in a surge  of  joy, you soar high.

Think of one from the opposite sex    
One  you like a little too much
Think of  sharing  with that person next
Private moments with a sensual touch

If it is taboo stuff  to think of
Have  a cold shower and sit down
To meditate on the Great one’s love
Or give yourself a  dressing-down.
